I have signed up with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £800 to help to improve a child's life through play. Play is incredibly important for children’s learning, well being and for healthy brain development. I believe every child should have the opportunity to gain from all the developmental benefits that play has to offer. East African Playgrounds build playgrounds all over Uganda - including in refugee camps - helping to build a sense of community and support for children. This summer I will be experiencing 4 incredible weeks living and working within a local community alongside paid Ugandan professionals and other volunteers like myself to help build a playground in Uganda. I will also be assisting on a creative play programme to inspire children at a school to learn, explore and develop themselves. I see East African Playgrounds as an amazing experience to help those who need it, by creating a safe and happy environment in which they can thrive. Please help me to reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can - any donations will be deeply appreciated.
